Premier League Preview for Stoke City v West Brom along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
While Stoke City began the year looking strong and in form, however this all seemed to change following their 0-0 draw against Manchester City. While that was a good result for them, it was followed by three straight defeats including a home loss to Norwich and an away loss to Fulham, both of which would have been targeted for wins.
West Brom are almost completely opposite of Stoke City, beginning the season with several disappointing draws and losses. These have been followed by two wins and a draw coming against Sunderland, Manchester United and Arsenal, in respective order.
Stoke are currently in 16th place with a 2-1-4 record while scoring only four times and allowing seven goals. West Brom have moved up into 12th place with a 2-3-2 record by scoring seven and allowing six with all seven of those goals being scored in their past four matches.
My prediction for Saturday’s EPL match is a draw. I would give West Brom a slight edge based on recent form, but the recent break should be a help for Stoke to be able to get their tactics ready.
Betting Odds: Stoke win: 2.19-2.29; Draw: 3.26-3.30; West Brom win: 3.39-3.77
Form: Stoke (W, W, D, L, L, L) West Brom (D, L, D, W, W, D)
Prediction: Stoke City 1 – 1 West Bromwich Albion
